...to my relative inexperience with the brand, I guess.
I agree that it was showing less fruit than when first purchased, but it only showed hints of those wonderful secondary flavors that some older CdPs develop, and seemed to me it was in that in-between stage when the fruit was fading but the tertiary flavors hadn't fully developed, so I thought "not yet mature - hold for 5" But as I say, I haven't had an older Bois de Boursan so I don't really know if it will ever develop, or just continue losing fruit with nothing to replace it.
At this point, I thought it was enjoyable, but not a wine to cause excitement, and I guess I will still take the gamble. Even if I lose, so what?
Unless, Jim, you or someone else on this board can tell me how this producer's wines go after they reach this point.
Where is Gary Kahle when you need him????
